Design Wall Monday 10/28/13

One of my goals for the month of October was to begin making at least one Christmas gift, and I have managed to do just that. I pieced the tops for a set of four placemats using Jinny Beyer's technique and one of her border stripe fabrics. You can find her pattern and a video on how to do it here. I love the way this pattern turns out--it is always a surprise! The fabric at the bottom is a possibility for the backs.

I have also started cutting a second set from another Jinny Beyer stripe. I hope to get those together soon.

I am linking up to Design Wall Monday at Patchwork Times. Check it out for great ideas and inspiration.

  1. It was a wonderful surprise! Those look great! I've some striped fabric that would work nicely for this. Thanks for sharing.

  2. These are really pretty, I am going to have to try that as we use placemats all the time.

  3. Wow! They turned out gorgeous! Did you use just one fabric.

  4. Yes, they are all from one of the border stripe fabrics I showed in my stash report on Sunday.
